COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Saison Dupont is a classic Belgian farmhouse ale. This is a beautifully balanced, complex beer that has a refreshing fruitiness and long, dry finish. It is bottled unfiltered so it may be cloudy or have a slight sediment but this is normal and perfectly natural.

For export relabeled as "Vieille Provision".

Aroma complex with pepper, coriander, wheat. Pours a tiny bit cloudy with a big white head that’s pretty intense. Straw body. Very dry. Slight chalk finish. Citrus comes through in taste. Very light body. Full complex flavor, lively, and refreshing.

Wow, too bad I had only one bottle to taste. Dark yellow with nice solid head. Its a nice bitter, no hidden sugars or remaining flavours. I like the used hops for the arima and spicy taste. Not a beer to drink quickly but definately one to enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Es una Saison, y en general no son de mi gusto, pero esta cerveza sube un poco el nivel. Tiene toques a manzana, ligera, con gas.

PanMarek (241) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Herbal, slightly spicy aroma with hay hops and a rich yeast background. Slight musty note. Some floral hops around the edges. Cloudy golden pour with persistent, thick white foam. Initially sharp on the tongue with active fizz and medium body. Very slight soapiness. Herbal notes come out in the tasting with some sweet malt backbone. Some acidic Slight metallic hoppy tang but with a dry finish. Robust alcohol toward the end. .

foyle (393) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Served from 750ml bottle into tulip glass. Appearance: thick, foamy white head that grows as more streaming carbonation occurs in the glass. This beer is very active. Color is cloudy yellow with some particles in suspension. Aroma: funky yeast is dominate with some citrus and spicy bread notes. Mouthfeel: thin bodied with an extremely dry finish. About my only complaint with this beer is that it is almost TOO dry. Flavor: yeasty bread dough, lingering citrus rind bitterness, sweet spices. Overall: an outstanding beer in this style.

Hungover (94) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2016
What can I say that hasn’t been said? Hazy. Cracked pepper and sweet banana with a hint coriander. A really great summer sipper.

Scrumpy369 (468) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle in hopaholic. Hazy yellow colour, almost no head. Nose is grain. Really strong grain like a muesli bar. Taste is also grainy, low sourness. Refreshing. Crisp. Good.

sulawang (1028) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2016
Visual: Corked with a twisty top. Pours golden yellow-orange with a very largy foamy head, 1cm long lasting retention, clusters of micro slow streams.

Nose: honey-floral-citrus sweet malt, yeasty and wheaty. (lvl-6)-intensity

Attack: super crisp

Mid-palate: airy-bloated CO2, (lvl-3-sweetness), grainy sweet lager barley malt, honey, light chamomile, lemony

Finish: banana wheat malt exhale, dry bittersweet hops

Summary: Easy and clean from start to finish. Solid without being excruciatingly complex.

I_LUV_BEER (175) - - JUL 22, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 330ml bottle. Pours hazy golden colour with a big white head, leaving lots of lacing in the glass. Aroma is orange peel, grass, yeast and grain. Taste is bitter orange, grapefruit, slight yeast and malts, finishing off with a pleasant lingering soft bitterness. Medium body with medium to high carbonation. A bit strong to be consumed as a session but very nice and tasty.
